What are the Benefits of Choosing Samco Printing Service for your Trade Show Printing?

There are lots of printers out there, but here is why you should choose us:

more than 30 years experience printing trade show materials

Samco Printers is well-known and respected for reliable, creative, professional print solutions. Our full service graphics and design department, offset/digital production department, our large format print facilities, complete bindery and finishing services and our professional packaging/shipping facilities are all staffed with experienced, skilled operators and technicians. Our design and graphics staff alone have 80 years of combined experience.

quantities tailored to your needs

Our offset and digital presses, large format and finishing equipment are all in-house, which means we can pick the best production method to cost effectively produce the quantity you actually need (whether short or long run).

we’ll ship directly to your trade show location or advance holding area

We are conveniently located just three blocks from Canada Place, the Vancouver World Trade Centre and The Vancouver Convention Centre. Our experienced shippers will professionally package, label and deliver your printing – you can be assured everything will arrive where and when you need it with our onsite delivery service.

corporate identity and brand consistency

We know how important it is to present a professional image and to maintain your brand integrity. All our equipment is carefully managed using a state-of-the-art colour management system and custom created colour profiles to ensure that your corporate colours and logos are printed accurately.

design and layout services

Because of their thorough knowledge of presses and production methods, our design team are experts at producing exciting and impressive designs while keeping production costs as low as possible. We eliminate the need to hire an expensive designer and then juggle information back and forth between the designer and printer.

brochures and handouts

Using state-of-the-art printing technology, we can produce brochures, sell-sheets, one-to-one personalized documents, and many other promotional materials, all with vibrant, attention-getting image quality.

Our digital colour press prints on a wide variety of paper and substrates (including many recycled and FSC papers), with weights ranging from bond and high-quality presentation paper, all the way up to thick 130 lb. cover stock. High-capacity paper trays plus the ability to load toner and stock while the machine runs means virtually non-stop printing, and that adds up to speedy turnaround times for you.

one-to-one marketing

Entice your customers with personalized invitations, announcements and more! One-to-One Marketing or Variable Data Printing (VDP) is changing the nature of trade show marketing, transforming it from a generic mass medium into a flexible, customized experience for each and every one of your clients.

VDP couples digital printing technology with electronic customer databases, allowing you to create targeted promotions that not only call the recipient by name, but also reflect their unique preferences, tastes and interests. This powerful new tool will win the attention of your audience, one person at a time, leading to an engaged customer base and higher sales as a result. Give us the chance to demonstrate the potential of Variable Data Printing and how your business can benefit from it.

posters, banners & signage

Big is beautiful! Through the use of high-fidelity, six-colour imaging, we produce large format images with rich photographic tones, vivid colours, and crisp, fine detail at very high resolutions. Our printer’s roll-fed paper supply allows for media as large as 5 feet wide and as long as you need, on a flexible selection of stock types. Eye-catching posters, product signage, photography prints and point-of-purchase displays on matte and glossy photo-base material; fine art replicas on studio canvas; durable banners on scrim vinyl; cling film for window signage; backlit film for light boxes; maps and architectural drawings on cost-efficient bond; or any other combination that suits your project; we can print it all.

We can print on a wide variety of rigid substrates such as foamcore, coroplast, gatorfoam, sintra and aluminum composite panels. We can also include any finishing elements you require: grommets, stitching, poster hangers, sandwich boards, lamination, construction hoarding and more.

trade show binders

Your trade show content is top-notch, so the look and feel of your reference materials should be too! Our digital print-on-demand technology gives you the flexibility to order the exact quantity you need, with the quality your participants deserve.

Need help organizing all that paperwork? We can scan, print and assemble it into a great looking presentation binder, booklet, or report, tailored to your upcoming event. Tabs allow for quick access to key points in your documents, and are available in a variety of sizes, colours and configurations.

Add that finishing touch with your choice of professional binding methods: perfect binding, plastic coil, wire-o, saddle-stitching, 3-hole drilling, stapling, Chicago screws (screw posts) or 3-ring binders.

custom ID Cards

We offer a versatile range of identification products, including name tags, security badges, and membership cards, etc., as well as lanyards, badge clips, lamination and pouch holders. Let us impress your attendees with colourful, event-specific graphics for one-time-use items, or supply durable, long-term promotional products to keep you in your clients’ minds long after they’ve left the trade show floor.

specialty media

Stick around! We have labels available on a range of adhesive materials combined with release liners. Depending on your needs, these stocks can be backed with either an aggressive high-tack permanent acrylic adhesive or a low-tack water-based removable adhesive.

In addition to our selection of adhesive stock, other specialty media includes: translucent bond & vellums, elegant textured papers, clear polyester films, vinyl cut letters, gloss, satin and matte laminates and much more.

roll-up banners

These user-friendly, self-contained banner displays (also known as pop-up or retractable banners) are a breeze to set up and take down, which gives you that much more time to spend with your potential customers.

A roll-up banner is a lightweight, instant presentation that speaks for itself, making it an ideal solution for your marketing and promotional needs. Available as a single or double-sided display, our banner stands have a sleek, efficient design. When not in use, the graphics are protected within the base unit, so there’s less chance of damage to your valuable message. Contact us to see for yourself why roll-up banners are one of our most popular products.

trade show displays

Stand out from the crowd! The high-impact look of a pop-up display communicates a solid presence at even the most competitive trade shows. Available in either 8 foot or 10 foot widths, the 100% aluminum self-locking frame assembles quickly to form a sturdy backwall for all your promotions and exhibits. Panels can be attached either magnetically or with velcro fasteners and come with two halogen lights, and a rigid travel case that also doubles as a podium.

substrate & specialized media

We can print on a wide variety of in-house materials to meet your specific needs – vinyl, canvas, fabric, pressure sensitive, re-positional, and mount on rigid substrates such as foamcore, coroplast, gatorfoam, sintra, and diabond aluminum. Give us a call at 604.683.6991 to ask for more details.
